Schloss Tarasp – Schlossführung
As a landmark of the Lower Engadine, Tarasp Castle, built in 1040, majestically overlooks the region, which today is owned by the in-house and internationally renowned artist Not Vital.


Tarasp belonged to Austria until the beginning of the 19th century. At the turn of the 20th century, the castle was bought in the desolate state by K. A. Lingner, spa guest and inventor of the Odol mouthwater, for CHF 20 000.00 and extensively renovated.

2016, the Swiss artist, Not Vital, acquired the castle. Today, Tarasp Castle houses a collection of ancient, modern, and contemporary art. The Not Vitals Foundation also includes the Parkin, a sculpture park in Sent, and the historic Plantahaus in Ardez.
